Optimizing release frequency and building a release train with Neo Financial's Sudeep Sidhu

In this podcast episode, we welcomed Sudeep Sidhu from Neo Financial and talked about optimizing release strategy and how they evolved from pushing ad-hoc feature releases to having a stable, bi-weekly release train.

In this episode 

Sudeep is the Lead Mobile Developer at Neo Financial, a Canadian financial technology company that reimagines the way people spend, save, and earn rewards — and how they help users make the most out of their time and money using today’s technologies.

With Russell Stephens, Engineering Manager at Bitrise, we talked to Sudeep about how the mobile team behind Canada’s main challenger bank approaches release strategy. Sudeep also shared how the team evolved from ad-hoc releases whenever they had a new feature to the stable bi-weekly release train that they have today.
